I spent numerous hours throughout the years shadowing Jim McLean, Butch Harmon, Lanny Bassham, Olympic gold medalist for the psychology side of golf and many other top instructors in the world. Always thought I wanted to play professionally, but realized I did not like being gone for extended periods of time enough and always had a passion for helping others through teaching. I love teaching and helping others, it is my passion. I adjust to the player and do not teach a one swing fits all method, I think it is important to build a swing around the ways the student moves best.

  • Marcus Gillmor 1460.3 miles

    My name is Marcus Gillmor and I turned professional in 2016 after competing in the amateur ranks for little over 6 years. While gaining my knowledge and expertise through Coastal Carolina University professional golf management program, I wanted to grow the game of golf to everyone seeking the same passion as I did. While being taught under several highly talented teaching professionals, I built my teaching style to give everyone the best possible way to improve and enjoy the game at the same time. To achieve this, I have four teaching philosophies that I install in all lessons: 1.     Simplicity – Keep the lessons simple so it’s easy for my students to learn and improve. 2.     Individuality – Each swing is like a thumb print; they are all unique in their own way. I take what is comfortable for you, what you have currently done, and make that better. 3.     Statically and visual information – With the use of technology, I will show you why your swing is doing what it is and how to improve on it. Using this information makes your practice sessions easier to understand. 4.     Practice Drills – The way to get better is completing practice drills so that your swing will become more natural in what I’m teaching. My key to success: If you are passionate about getting better, the more practice and dedication you give, the faster the results will come.

  • Eli Haskell 1465.8 miles
    •    (4.9)

    I proudly hail from Glenwood Springs Colorado, and have nearly 20 years of golf coaching experience working with golfers from beginners to professionals. I earned my undergraduate degree from The Colorado College, and a Masters degree in Physical Therapy from Eastern Washington University. This extensive background has enabled me to become a specialist in golf biomechanics and an expert at correctly identifying each student’s physical makeup pertaining to the golf swing.             My experience with golfers has taught me that everyone has different swing concepts, as well as, physical and mental abilities.  I will never teach one ‘ideal’ swing method or way to play.  Instead, I listen, observe, and ask questions first, in a detailed initial consultation and evaluation of your goals and desires.   My objective is to mold and develop what each golfer brings to the table, in order to help them achieve their best results.   At the core of my teaching philosophy is a sincere coaching and mentoring attitude toward the development of golfers. I often say, ‘this is not a dictatorship.  Your input, opinions, and experiences, help me shape how I teach you.’  I firmly believe this!  In the end, together, we create an ever evolving and growing relationship between student and instructor.          

  • Henry Stetina 1696.2 miles

    Do you want to be able to hit more good shots than bad ones? Do you want to enjoy the game more with your family and friends? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you came to the right place! ABOUT ME: I am a PGA Teaching Professional with a passion for helping golfers experience more joy and fulfillment through golf. I teach golf and golf instruction for the New Mexico State University PGA Golf Management Program. I am also the Director of Instruction for Red Hawk Golf Club in Las Cruces, NM, and the Executive Director for the Las Cruces Junior Golf Association. MY COMMITMENT TO YOU: The improvement that you make and the goals that you achieve in golf will reflect the time and effort that you commit to the game. In other words, your improvement is your responsibility. As your coach though, I am committed to answering your questions, helping you set SMART goals, and providing recommendations about your swing, practice routines, and course management decisions. Ultimately, I am committed to being by your side (remotely of course) every step of the way. It is my passion to help you achieve your goals, but it is my duty to make you into a self-reliant golfer. WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT: I am a straight forward, no BS, kind of a guy. I am committed to your success but I expect for you to be far more committed. After all, it is your game we are talking about. I don’t fluff things to make you feel comfortable. Instead. I address the root of the problem. Don’t be surprised if I challenge you both physically and mentally. Since muscles don’t move on their own, the physical improvement that you make in your golf swing will likely be the result of the mental improvement that you make. Lastly, I will be available to you on an as needed basis (I normally respond quickly), but please respect my time and give me 24-48 hours to respond to your message. ACCOMPLISHMENTS: I have been recognized as Golf Digest’s Best Teacher in New Mexico for 2019-2020, the Sun Country Teacher of the Year in 2016, Sun Country Youth Player Development Award in 2018, and Sun Country Player Development Award in 2019.

I not only teach the game at a high level but play to one as well, having competed in a handful of national championships; two PGA Professional Championships and two NJCAA Championships.

After turning professional in 1986 he continued his play on various mini-tours home and abroad. In 1990 he turned his focus to teaching and learning more about the golf swing and how to communicate his understanding of the swing to his students. Gregg Downey provides his students with an understanding of the basic swing fundamentals and how the fundamentals affect their golf swing. Cause & Effect Golf identifies key fundamentals that contribute to building a better golf swing. Golfers of all skill levels have swing faults, tendencies that may be detrimental to their golf games progress. Once proper identification is made of the tendencies the student can then learn techniques to minimize the severity or frequency of the tendency to occur. Less frequency results in better golf shots. It is a straight forward approach; go to the source that begins the process of building. It is Downey’s 30 years of teaching and playing experience that helps him to take a simple straight forward approach to repair a golf swing. The second of part Downey’s success as an instructor is his study of the inner game of golf. Inner game techniques are a critical part of a golfer’s progress. From learning a new golf move to playing competitive golf it is important the player be given the proper mental tools to help overcome the obstacles that students face when striving for great success. It is the goal of Gregg Downey and Cause & Effect Golf to make golf enjoyable learning experience for all who play.

  • Scott Watkins, PGA 1947.4 miles
    •    (5.0)

    For a little over 28 years I’ve been a PGA instructor successfully helping golfers from beginners to PGA Tour players hone their golfing skills and lower scores and I will do the same for you regardless of your playing level! I have followed in my father, Arch’s footsteps, who is enshrined in the Arizona Golf Hall of Fame and the Southwest Section of the PGA Hall of Fame. Mission Statement: My mission is to accelerate and simplify the learning process so you will achieve lasting results as fast as is reasonably possible without compromising the integrity of any aspect of your golf game. Some major accomplishments and awards include: Pac 10 Player of the Year First and Second team All American at Arizona State University Southwest Section PGA Section Player of the Year Southwest Section PGA Teacher of the year Five-time nominee for Golf Magazines Top 100 Golf Instructors Ranked 9th, 12th, 11th and 7th in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2013 respectively Arizona Open Winner 4-time Southwest Section Champion   I accomplish it through the following teaching philosophy: Understand your goals and how much time you will devote to achieving them through practice and playing Determine with you which sensory teaching method best enables your learning process Customize and communicate instructions that are consistent with your sensory learning preference so we are in sync and can accelerate the learning curve Implement a relevant lesson plan, tweak it as necessary, and achieve positive results Your Key Towards Success: Whether you are a beginner, want a swing change, a tweak, or otherwise improve your game, the key towards success is using an experienced instructor whose teaching method is in sync with the way you learn best, be it verbally, visually, or through feel. The Wrong Key: If the instructor’s teaching method is different from the way you learn best there will be a serious communication problem that adversely affects your learning process. For instance, if you learn best with visuals and your instructor’s method of teaching is through a sense of feel the lesson will be out of sync from the beginning. PGA Touring Pros: Over 99% of the PGA Tour’s top players have swing coaches whose teaching methods are consistent with their sensory learning ability. This enables them to realize positive results as fast as possible because the pro and swing-coach are on the same wavelength… and results are what count. Call or email me so we can talk about achieving your golf goals and getting positive results!
